The British Standards Institute recently published new cyber security standard that aim to push UK’s position as a leader in the development of self-driving vehicles.
The British Standards Institute developed the standards working with academics and experts from leading businesses in the car industry including Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Bentley, as well as the National Cyber Security Centre. It was funded by the Department for Transport for the purpose.
The UK market for connected and automated vehicles is forecast to be worth up to £52 billion by 2035. This cyber security standard expects to improve the resilience and readiness of the industry, and help keep the UK at the forefront of advancing transport technology.
This follows the government’s publication last year which set out key principles of cyber security for automated vehicles, such as the expectation that systems should be designed to be resilient to attacks and respond appropriately when its defences fail. Car manufacturers will be able to use the new standard published to demonstrate that they are following these principles.
